It is with great pride and excitement that we announce the launch of our schools Positive Education program here at CESC in 2023.
Positive education is the combination of traditional education principles with the study of happiness and wellbeing. The purpose behind implementing the B+ve@CESC program is to create a school community where students and staff are feeling good and doing good. The feeling good is about cultivating resilience, healthy minds, vitality, emotional stability and a sense of connectedness to a community. The doing good is about caring for others, nurturing positive relationships, displaying acts of kindness and using ones skills and knowledge to contribute to society. The premise is, if we can work to make our students and staff feel good, they will in turn do good and thus improve the learning environment for the whole school community.
As part of the B+ve@CESC program our students will undertake a range of learning experiences implemented in the school curriculum and as stand alone presentations and workshops. I am excited to announce CESC has formed two major partnerships with The Resilience Project and The Reach Foundation, the purpose of these partnerships is to further enhance the schools ability to prepare our students for life both within and outside of school. Skills and knowledge they will be learning will equip them to be resilient, happy, optimistic and caring individuals ready to face the stressors of day to day life.
